Updated:CONNELLSVILLE, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A Dunbar Township man has been charged with vehicular homicide while driving drunk for allegedly causing a crash two days after his high school graduation that killed a female college student.
Ethan Kenney, 19, faces a preliminary hearing Friday on charges stemming from the June 9 crash that killed 19-year-old Catherine Healy.
Healy was a 2011 graduate of Connellsville Area High School, from which Kenney graduated last year. Healy was attending Penn State-Behrend and was the only passenger when Kenney's pickup crashed about 4 a.m.
Kenney's attorney, Samuel Davis, called the crash "a terrible tragedy" and Healy's death the most significant part of the case. Still, he's hoping the charge of vehicular homicide while driving drunk can be dismissed because it carries a mandatory three-to-six-year prison sentence.
